The Trump Effect: How the New Administration is Impacting Homecare

  •   Webinar
  •   9/26/2017
  •   Angelo Spinola, Shareholder, Littler Mendelson PC

President Trump has taken office with a Republican majority in both the Senate and House of Representatives. The new administration already has taken action that will impact home care, including the failed appeal of the Affordable Care Act, and nominating Alexander Acosta as the next Secretary of Labor and Judge Neil Gorsuch as the next U.S. Supreme Court justice. What do these and other developments mean for home care companies? No one can say with certainty what will happen, but investigations and lawsuits against healthcare and home care companies continue to rise, while the new political administration’s policy agenda remains in flux.

In this episode, Tripp Matthews of Curaport and Danielle Pierotti of Elevating HOME are joined by Ryan Cavanaugh, CIO of Fusion Healthcare, and Teresa Craig, VP of Client Strategy at Netsmart Technologies.  The second episode is about Technology as it relates to Policy and Regulatory matters in Homecare.  We discuss where Technology has driven policy changes, and also how Technology is enabling Regulatory Compliance for Homecare providers. 

 

An interesting tangent was taken about the struggles of many agencies to afford the technologies that would further enhance their compliance with policies and regulations.  Also, how the adoption and usage of Technology is still much of the problem when it comes to the intersection of Technology and Homecare.

What You Need To Know About Electronic Visit Verification

  •   Webinar
  •   4/12/2017

In this free webinar, sponsored by CellTrak, Darby Anderson discusses what EVV really means.  Because in December 2016, President Obama signed the 21st Century Cures Act. The act itself covers a variety of topics – and notably requires states to implement electronic visit verification (EVV) for Medicaid Personal Care  services and Home Health Care Services.  EVV offers many benefits to agencies and care providers, and choosing the right solution can lead to improved operating efficiency, caregiver communication, quality of care, and client satisfaction.
